Steelworkers Treasurer in Michigan Pleads Guilty to Records Fraud

On January 11, Kimberly Steinhoff, former treasurer of United Steelworkers Local 87, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan to a superseding one-count information charging her with falsifying financial records of the Munising (Upper Peninsula)-based union. She originally had been charged last June with embezzling $12,751 in union funds. The actions follow an investigation by the U.S. Labor Department’s Office of Labor-Management Standards.
